Gone Boating? There’s an App for that.

Gone Boating, Gone Flying and Gone Trekking, make it safer for Apple iPhone users to spend time in the Great Outdoors. The applications utilize the GPS, Google maps, calendar and camera features of the iPhone. Each application enables the user to record their departure, destination and waypoint information. They also enable the user to email or post a Twitter message containing their trip details and maps.

With the applications users can:

Record boat, aircraft, crew, trekking party and safety equipment details.
Record trip start, trip end and waypoint dates and times using the scrolling calendar.
Record trip start, trip end and waypoint locations using the GPS, map screen and search function.
Take a photo of their boat, aircraft, crew or trekking party.
Email trip details and maps to Search and Rescue teams, family or friends.
Post a Twitter message containing their trip details.
Notify their family or friends if they decide to change their dates, times or location details.
Notify their family or friends when they have returned or reached their destination.
